Welcome to Team.CHC!

We’re so close to the completion of URBNSURF Sydney!
Once completed, Urbnsurf will provide residents in outer suburbs of the city, where access to a coastline is limited, the opportunity to participate in surfing culture. This new piece of community infrastructure will cater to a diverse audience and activating the area and connecting people through sport, art, music, food and more.

We’re so excited to see this project come to completion after all the hard work put in by the teams of people involved: URBNSURFWavegardenOCULUSLipman Pty LtdThe APP Group, and Northrop Consulting Engineers.

Plus our CHC team members: Oswaldo Marcelo, Lauren BellJames DespotidisSarah JuryWilliam Marsden

Each year, as part of our charitable partnership with One Heart Foundation, we send two CHC team members to take part in a life-changing experience, Run For Change. This year our participants are Mike (Senior Architect, Education) & Sam (Architect, Mixed Use).

The experience takes place in Kenya over ten days and includes an action packed itinerary filled with visits to the One Heart villages, schools and farms, volunteering, training, personal development and finishes with a marathon run.

The journey pushes and supports participants beyond their perceived boundaries to overcome a range of physical, mental, and emotional challenges. Not only will they be expanding and developing as individuals, but their efforts will be helping to break the poverty cycle for many children in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda.
